The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and Non-Academic Staff Union of University and Allied institutions (NASU) in the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) have sought a level playing ground in the appointment of a new Vice-Chancellor.
Speaking at a joint congress yesterday, the SSANU Chairman, Ademola Oketunde, said the unions want the appointment process put on hold because “the process is fraudulent”.
According to him, the governing council did not follow due process, adding that they are not sincere and fair to all the candidates.
He added that the council has usurped the power and responsibilities of the selection committee.
He said the prayers of the unions are that all qualified candidates be granted a level playing ground.
He prayed the Federal Government to dissolve the governing council as “it has outlived its usefulness”.
